Rant and Rave Friday


For those of you even thinking about getting Dish Network, DON'T!  They are the absolute worst cable/dish provider in St. Louis.  Not only were we unable to watch 95% of the St. Louis Blues games, I can't stand them for other reasons, as well.  #1 It is almost impossible to search for shows to record.  #2 You cannot stop a show that is currently recording.  #3 While they say you can record 2 channels at the same time, if you decide you'd like to stop one of them while it is recording, you can't.  #4 If it barely sprinkles, it goes out.  They are horrible.

-Joe Buck's Restaurant-They have an incredible rooftop patio that I went to over the weekend.  I took family members back there on Sunday after the Cardinal game and it was closed.  When I asked them about it they said that it is closed every Sunday.  I can understand it not being open on a normal Sunday but when there is a Cardinal game, why in the world wouldn't it be open?  When we asked the bartender about it he said that it was too unpredictable to open up on Sundays.  Once again, the day of a Cardinal game it is pretty safe to say that every restaurant and bar is going to be packed. 

Paul Serling Smith caused a whole greater community to come together this week when he kidnapped 4-year-old Alisa Meier from her own front yard this week.  It was a wake up call to me, personally.  Smith later died from a self-inflicted gun wound.

LeBron James for making the last week all about him.  I do not care the least about the NBA but even I was sucked into the drama.  James has every right to play for whatever team he wants but why put the entire country through 48 hours of hearing nothing but where he was going to play.  So glad that is over.

-My entire gets a rave this weekend for helping us have a fabulous 4th of July and for their generosity with Caleb and Gracie and all of the presents they received.

-All of the concerned citizens who were cognizant enough to realize that something was right at that car wash down in Fenton.  Their suspicion led to the release of the little girl, Alissa Meier.
